In June 2017, Bishop Bill Murdoch announced his retirement and confirmed that he would call for the election of a new bishop in an 18-month process. That work is now almost complete.

The Committee on Nominations for Bishop (CNB) has now selected the final two candidates for election, the Rev. Andrew Williams and the Rev. Canon Dr. Thomas Herrick. 

More about each candidate is available on AD-NE website, including a special page for each candidate that contains their spiritual autobiography, curriculum vitae, and answers to the questions put to them by the CNB. Visit

Additional information and important documents can be found there, along with a general calendar outlining upcoming dates.
